Morning Greatness: Barr Speaks Out About Trump’s Tweets

Good Friday morning.

Here’s what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president receives his intelligence briefing
  • President Trump delivers remarks to National border Patrol Council Members
  • President Trump and the First Lady arrive at Mar-a-Lago

Barr tells media Trump’s tweets make it difficult to do his job

The media is so excited, you guys, because Attorney General Bill Barr has dished some smack about Trump’s tweets. ABC News wants you to know that Barr “blasts” Trump’s tweets.

In an exclusive interview, Attorney General Bill Barr told ABC News on Thursday that President Donald Trump “has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case” but should stop tweeting about the Justice Department because his tweets “make it impossible for me to do my job.”

I agree with Barr here, Trump should not tweet about the cases at the Department of Justice because it looks shifty and it looks like he is telling Barr how to do his job.

“I think it’s time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases,” Barr told ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas.

“I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody … whether it’s Congress, a newspaper editorial board, or the president,” Barr said. “I’m gonna do what I think is right. And you know … I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me.” Testify!

In the case of Roger Stone, Barr explained that he had already decided to take action about the publicized sentencing recommendation the four (FOUR!) attorneys made for Stone. After Trump tweeted his displeasure, it appeared that Barr was acting because Trump made an issue about it. That’s what the Democrats are saying so they can hold hearings and try and impeach the president. Lather, rinse, repeat.

But Barr is right, it doesn’t look good and the left is desperate to get rid of him along with Trump. No need to help them with their plans to craft another ridiculous narrative.

For those waiting for Trump to go off half-cocked on Barr, sorry to disappoint.

“The President wasn’t bothered by the comments at all and he has the right, just like any American citizen, to publicly offer his opinions. President Trump uses social media very effectively to fight for the American people against injustices in our country, including fake news. The President has full faith and confidence in Attorney General Barr to do his job and uphold the law,” Grisham said in a statement.
